Subject: List archives
Thanks a million for adding the Zipped archives to the web page. I
joined the list in the March-April time frame and it's great to be able
to see everything I missed prior to joining. I had been looking at the
archives one by one if the subject line looked interesting, but in
addition to being tedious, you really can't judge a post by it's title.
I just wish the archives went back further!
One note - After unzipping each file, the formatting is screwed up. I
tried both PKUNZIP and WINZIP, on both .ZIP and GZIP files. If I view
the resulting text file with the Notepad application, carriage returns
are ignored and everything just runs together. To fix the problem, I ran
the original file through MS WORD and saved it as a text file. Now I can
view the file with Notepad or any other editor, not an obvious solution,
but it works.
Thanks and regards, Gary
